Retirement Online: Bronze Certification Deadline

If you haven’t already done so, you must complete your bronze certification by May 31.

Bronze certification is the first step to prepare your organization to use Retirement Online. Here you will establish your organization’s security and contact administrators, request access for employer contacts and assign security roles. For more information about completing your Bronze certification, see our three-step guide Adobe pdf. If you have questions about the process, please contact the Retirement Online Employer Help Desk.

Keep Your Employee Contact Information Up to Date

Your organization’s Contact Administrator is responsible for maintaining contact information for your employees who do business with NYSLRS. These contacts may include your payroll, billing and personnel staff, along with your CEO/CFO and board clerk.

Your Contact Administrator (you have at least one, and you could have up to two alternates) should sign in to Retirement Online periodically to review all contacts and make any needed changes. This is especially important when contacts retire and whenever you hire new employees who will need to work with NYSLRS. If your Contact Administrator has any questions about updating information in Retirement Online, they can email Employer Access.

Employer Reporting Update

As we continue to prepare for the release of employer reporting using Retirement Online, please continue to use RIR for monthly reporting and log in to our online programs using your /RIR username.
